The touchscreen Garmin Edge 800 GPS puts the geek in geek sports. It is a great choice for hikers and bikers who want to know where they're going, where they've been, and the level of their physical performance.

In addition to the standard tracking and mapping features found in most Garmin GPS units, the Garmin Edge 800 GPS has the ability to calculate calories burned, elevation gains and losses, and it can wirelessly sync with third-party biometric health and heart rate monitors. All of this information is stored and can be retrieved for use at a later date.
